Greenwich Point Park (Tod’s Point) represents a great getaway for Greenwich residents where they can enjoy swimming, jogging, fishing or sailing.
Recently opened to the public, the Greenwich Point Park area and its jagged coastline beaches have been hailed by New York Magazine as “a feasible alternative to the Jersey Shore or the Hamptons.” A stroll down this scenic area replete with sandy beaches, sailboats, and ornate homes poking through the green trees will certainly reinforce this notion. Greenwich Point Park is open daily from sunup to sundown.
Common activities on the beach include swimming, sunbathing, jogging, walking, fishing and many sailboat activities, races and cruises . Picnic tables and benches are placed in various areas and each offers a different picturesque view of the shoreline. Many find this location a beautiful area to just relax and contemplate peacefully. At the point, surrounded by water on three sides, there is a breathtaking vantage point of the Long Island Sound, Long Island, and the New York skyline.
The park is a fantastic place to observe nature; there are a variety of birds and plant life that reside on the beach, and in the surrounding marshes and woods.
You can find here the historic Innis Arden Cottage (aka Queen Anne Building) - built by the Tod Family in 1902-1903 for use as a guest house - operating now as the Floren Family Environmental Center. It is also home to the Bruce Museum Seaside during the summer months.
Entrance to the park is just $5 per car for Greenwich residents and $20 for non-residents.
